Get Phil Colllins Knighted E-mail Campaign

Dear Faithful Readers of One More Knight,

Now entering our fourth full week of existence, we’ve yet to garner the sort of response and reaction to this web campaign that would allow it to qualify as “viral.” To be honest, we thought the mere mention of getting Phil Collins Knighted in a simple Facebook group would ignite the Internet like a cigarette haphazardly tossed into some dry brush in the American West.

The reality of this whole “going viral” thing is that while some content on the Internet heats up in such a manner, most of the  content produced for the world wide web is more akin to a loud, incoherent message shouted into a space-like vacuum. Needless to say, we were a bit naive about the effects of metaphorically screaming our lungs out into that atmosphere-less abyss and our advances have mostly fallen on deaf ears like those of someone who has spent a good amount of time sitting a little too close to the kit during one of  Phil Collins’ killer drum duets with Chester Thompson.

Rather than hang our heads in shame and call ourselves a failure; we’ve founds ourselves coming down with a case of indefatigable moxie and boy do we hope it’s contagious. In order to better channel our vigorous resolve to accomplish, we’ve decided that today would be a good idea to launch the official One More Knight “Get Phil Collins Knighted” E-Mail campaign.

We’re encouraging all of our readers to spread the word by sending email blasts to your favorite blogs, respected newspapers, ,music periodicals and Monarchs (who can also be reached on twitter).  Let them know that you’d like to see Phil Collins Knighted, because only when you let your voice be heard do you really have the right to complain that the singer of “In The Air Tonight” has not yet become a Knight.

We’re going to get the ball rolling by reaching out to the Queen herself with our original post. So go forth and tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends that together we will get Phil Collins Knighted!

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

The Blokes Behind “One More Knight.”

Shatner Steals Our Thunder

Dear Fans of Phil Collins,

Yesterday the principles of “One More Knight” were collectively perusing the trending Internet topics on one site or another when we noticed that the esteemed cultural icon William Shatner was seemingly on the tip of digital tongues everywhere.  Out of curiosity, we clicked on his linked moniker which led us to several news articles touting a Facebook group with the stated goal of getting Captain Kirk nominated for the position of Governor General of Canada.  Publications such as the LA Times, eonline, Wired, and the Vancouver Sun all picked up on this story and while we feel as though those who started this movement are kindred spirits, we can’t help but be a tad bit jealous of their success.

Since March 22nd they’ve amassed 41,000 followers to our measly 94 and  have even garnered a reaction from the man they seek to install into the government of their homeland.  Needless to say, quite the impressive feat. We would expect no less of a group that has chosen such a worthy subject to fill such an important position.  Canadian Governorship is not exactly Knighthood, but it’ll do.

Rather than sit here and stew in a pot of jealousy, this discovery has filled us with a new amount of resolve. We too shall amass a stunning amount of followers and not only will people be talking about our quest to “Get Phil Collins Knighted,” but the people who do talk about us will be important people, like Phil Collins, the Queen of England, and William Shatner. We may harbor a strong desire to make things happen, but needless to say, we cannot do it without your help. Tell your friends across the world of our quest and our facebook fan group and one day you’ll be referring to singer of such great songs as “Another Day in Paradise” and “Mama” as “Sir Phil Collins.”

Thanks for your time and consideration.  Let’s make this happen.

Sincerely,

The good-hearted, good-humoured blokes at “One More Knight”

In The Papers!

We’re not exactly sure what The Denver Egotist is, but seeing as it has a fancy digital masthead we’re going to go ahead and refer to it as our first official press clipping.

Pardon Our Lackluster Screen Capture Ability

The game is now officially afoot. The word is out and we’re that much closer to our goal of getting Phil Collins knighted.  A heartfelt thanks to all at The Denver Egotist who’ve made this possible.  Go forth and spread the gospel.  May it reach the Queen’s ears.
